We'll be holding future Fun Nights on the third Friday of each month (January 19, February 23, March 6, April 20) featuring a variety of callers and dance styles to keep things fresh and interesting.

ECR General Meeting

El Camino Reelers held its annual General Meeting on Wednesday, December 6. The Board presented the current state of the club, including our financial situation and plans for a weekend Blast Class on January 27-28. Other items of note:

  • Starting in January, the door fee for Wednesday nights will go up to $8 ($7 with an 8-week subscription), the same as Tuesdays.
  • Friday potluck door fees will also go up to $8. (We're looking for a new name to replace "$5 Friday").
  • Members voted unanimously to raise the door fee for Saturday dances to $12 for guests, $10 for ECR members.
  • Members also voted to purchase a new club banner, to be paid for by generous donations from Craig and Kim.
  • We will be holding a Holiday Party, recognizing December birthdays and featuring an Ugly Sweater contest, on Wednesday, December 20. Rich will be calling.

Real dancing.
Real people.
Real fun.

EL CAMINO REELERS is a modern Western Square Dance club, formed by lesbians and gay men in order to meet people, have fun, and learn to square dance. We dance to live callers using the Callerlab Mainstream, Plus, Advanced, and C1 programs.

LEARN TO SQUARE DANCE! It's a great way to meet active, open-minded, intelligent, and sometimes very silly people. We would be glad to welcome you to our club. Send a note to information@reelers.org and let us know you're interested.
